This was my first attempt at a pumpkin pie and it turned out well. The only other pie I have made was pecan and they are simple too. I haven't tried to make my own crust, I just used a frozen one for this recipe. It seemed to take forever to finish baking, but the end product turned out well.
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
2 1/2 tsp. Pumpkin pie spice
2 large eggs
1 can (15 oz) Pumpkin Puree
1 can (12 oz) Evaporated milk
1 unbaked 9-inch deep-dish pie crust
Mix sugar, salt and pumpkin pie spice in a small bowl. Beat eggs in large bowl. Stir in pumpkin and sugar-spice mix. Gradually stir in evaporated milk. Pour into pie shell.
Bake in preheated 425 degree oven for 15 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350 degrees, bake for 40-50 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack for 2 hours. Serve immediately or refrigerate.
